    I was JUST looking for some explanations. I don’t like Union combat. So I didn’t wanna play through it. But I HAD to know what happened. And then this notification popped up. You are a life saver. Also. Is there any big plot points I missed that this video didn’t explain? I’ve been a KH fan ever since the very beginning. I wanna know the whole story but I cannot bring myself to play Union

    Luxu was told by MoM that he could “watch, but not interfere.” Luxu broke this order and interfered when he took Brain’s body/sent him to the future somehow. Luxu, in that moment, went against the MoM’s plan and becomes the actual traitor.

  29. OrangeLightning
    June 2, 2021 @ 9:42 am

    The moment Luxu told Brain that his life was ending I already knew what was up. But like dang.

    June 2, 2021 @ 10:00 am

    Notes: It kinda makes sense you can’t destroy the 13 darknesses, you need them to clash with the 7 lights to make the X-blade and open Kingdom Hearts.

    The whole possession thing reminds me of Riku, who had a heart so strong that even while Dark Riku, was strong enough to *take Sora’s keyblade from him, and then he proceeds to beat back the same darkness.* Riku got all that power from Ansem, and if you look at final boss Ansem in kh1, in the void, that thing looks pretty close to what I’d consider a “Primal Darkness”.

    Master Yen Sid sent Sora and Riku into the Sleeping Worlds as a mark of mastery test, to learn the “power of waking”. The fact the Dream Eaters are lost keyblade wielders… kinda hurts a little more knowing that. Could Sora now go back (now that he’s woken Ventus) and save them…? Does Yen Sid know this?

  70. Spirits 2024
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:05 am

    If anyone is confused

    The master sealed 4 of the ORIGINAL 13 darknesses inside the Data World that is a cage to keep darkness in.

    The others went as follows

    7 are currently inside the foretellers
    Master of Masters

    One hitched a ride with Ventus to the future, I lost track of the final one UNLESS it was Dark Chirithy

    Lauriam ended up in Dwarf Woodlands

    Elrena in enchanted dominion

    Ventus in the Keyblade Graveyard

    Skuld in Radiant Garden (that’s why we didnt see where she arrived we were told in the KH3 secret reports its undeniable, we only didnt know where everyone else ended up)

    Ephemera in the Future ruined Daybreak Town but we dont know how far it could be days weeks months years

    Brain in the newly formed Scala after Ephemera has well established it

    The reason Xehanort was so obsessed with the past is because he wanted to see everyone again, Darkness probably awoke his sleeping memories

    While he went on his World Tour (he can see darkness because his heart was formerly already exposed to darkness and darkness already revealed its self to us in a former life so he retained that ability to see darkness in his new life) and he remembered EVERYTHING and wanted to reset the world so that everyone could be together again. He missed his friends he wanted to see Ephemera, Skuld, Ventus, Lauraim, Elrena, and Brain again.

    How brain got to the future

    His hat like you said was his medium, but someone needed to remember him which IF Ephemera passed down their legacy then people would have memories for him to return.

    How it happened
    If Luxu released his heart to possess Brain then Brains Heart got booted like Terras with Xehanort but didn’t become a heartless like Terra did (the guardian) it had no where to go so if Brain pre programmed the last pod Ephemera looked at before leaving to leave after the last two pods then his heart could’ve got into the final pod and Luxu leaves Brains Hat that is found and kept safe by Ephemera then boom Brain can arrive and reform

    Ephemera formed Scala the same way Aqua formed Castle Oblivion hes a Keyblade Master so he can do it. And that’s why the Main island has the Daybreak Town tower beneath it and is several islands instead of one big one because it’s made from scattered ruins
    Was Brain or Ephemera reincarnated as Eraques and that’s why we (Xehanort) are so close to them

  71. Youtube-GJ
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:05 am

    My running theory is that Luxu took Brains body, and sent his heart into the future to be reformed in Scala. Meanwhile Luxu may pass his keyblade on to Ephemera, after the destruction of Daybreak town and around the time of Scala’s formation

  72. WarpChaos

    June 2, 2021 @ 10:07 am

    I’m sensing that the next saga will Have Sora Constantly going against Yozora because Yozora sees Sora as a villain and Sora will join the Foretellers and MoM to kill the darkness

  76. Mark Jackson
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:07 am

    What if all of quadratum’s characters are old keyblade wielders (previous comrades) that made it to the other side to be stuck inside a world of fiction. the master of masters is trying to establish Kingdom hearts in Quadratum in order to take over the world and harness the next amalgamation of keyblade wielders for the next keyblade war. Unfortunately, Sora doesn’t know he’s about to be recruited into that world as the only keyblade bearer while the Master of Masters was able to slip in between reality and unreality. Riku arrives and is presented as a threat by the master of masters in order to return Yozora’s Sora(nameless star) back to her reality since she is in unreality (KH universe). Finally, Sora is the piece that replaces the master of masters as final darkness. Afterwards, the time loop inside Quadratum throws sora into the master of master’s essence, and helps everyone inside in order to break outside of the worldlines to return to KH reality. boom send me my KH degree

  77. Doco56
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:07 am

    The Chirithy becomes the Dream Eater to protect the wielder’s heart, not the wielders themselves. Admittedly yes the wielder has to go to sleep for their Chirithy to change but I don’t think they contribute to the form themselves.

    in that secret ending in kh3 wit luxu talkin to the furries. he says he casted his old form away and refers to his appearances as semblances. if you asked me i’d say that he’s just using magic to look like people, semblance refers to outward appearances. idk thats just me, cause if luxu sent brain to the future for scala then in that time frame he could look like brain and we not have two people walkin around lookin like eachother. or he body snatched. who knows.

    That thumbnail tho!? Honestly, it’s a pretty cool remake of Brain. Overall, I was hoping that the player character would reincarnate into Sora, but if it’s true that we’re Xehanort, then maybe Ephraimer either reincarnated into Eraquis and that’s why they’re so close or offered Sora help in kh3 since he knew his friend was too far gone!? They should definitely either remake Union Cross with the new engine or at least the old one or just bring the whole mobile collection to the Nintendo Switch!
    (And then announced Sora for Smash)

  91. Damien Mealei
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:14 am

    I mean …. A pod was used. If Luxu took Brain’s body he could have put his heart into the pod and made sure the hat ended up in Scala Ed Caelum.

    The heart is capable of breaking the time barrier after all.

  92. Alexis Maniego
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:15 am

    I think Luxu sent a replica to time where Brain’s heart can go in to. (Since the time where Scala Ad Caelum founded, people or keyblade wielders rather remember who he was that was probably it). Then for the Brain’s empty body, Luxu take that as his first vessel since he says that it is a waste if Brain’s life end there, and he take up the duty to watch daybreak town fall into darkness.

    Okay, I see EVERYONE have missed forest for the trees.

    What are the Kingdom Hearts series about? It would be strange if the series wasn’t about, you know… Kingdom Hearts?
    Now, what are Kingdom Hearts is protected by? The X-Blade.
    What did the X-Blade shatter into? 7 pieces of light and 13 pieces of darkness.
    Where did the pieces of light go? Into Princesses of Hearts, right?
    And, where did the pieces of darkness go? Also, X-Blade was implied to be destroyed during the Keyblade War, but we’ve never got to witness it.

    DUH! 13 darknesses are the original X-Blade pieces, which was destroyed during the very first Keyblade War in the distant past. Master of Masters learned about it at some point, and since then worked hard to destroy the darknesses.

    X/union x(cross) has my favourite story bits out of any kh game so far.
    But a lot of people probably won’t play the game/ read up on it, just because it’s on mobile…

    I think the old blue-robed guy is an older Brain. Seems the right age to be Eraqus’ grandpa. I think he took Xehanort away for some reason. Checking in on Destiny Islands every so often (so he was still present in Eraqus’ life in order to tell stories to him and such). For some reason, Scala’s appearance vastly changed between Xehanort being born and him arriving in Scala later in his life.

    I think Luxu is labelled as a Traitor due to interfering directly with MoM plans as was told by him.

    He is allowed take other peoples body, but should not interfere with the people directly connected to the keyblade war or that was mentioned by MoM, as MoM stated he needed the union leaders as cages for darkness,
    So he interfered directly into the MoM plans thus resulting him as a Traitor.
    But this was all part of the plan as seen by the MoM…

    Also we got the info that the traitor bare the sigil LuXu

    I know this sounds like pure bullshit, but the hooded figure who was watching xehanort kinda reminds me of maleficent pretending to be an old lady, same color, patterns, even the pose. I don’t have any idea how this would make sense, but hell apparently anything is possible on Kingdom Hearts.

    I’ve taken to calling the darker aesthetic Scala “Ephemer’s Scala” then the one we’re used to is just Scala. I feel like the difference in aesthetic is odd. Could genuinely just be diff time periods tho idk.

    Nomura really upped his storytelling ability with X chi that it’s fucking insane. I’m not saying the other KH stories aren’t great. Imo what made the other stories great was a mixture of everything. From characters to worlds to the overall story to interactions, music etc. But With chi. The characters were cool but the story was something else. In terms of execution, keeping you in your toes, not even knowing what will happen next to the point of it acting like a action/sci/thriller tv show. Well done Nomura. Very well done

    What if Ephemer is the ancestor of xehanort, assuming many decades/centuries passed after ephemers time? His mom might have the tome of prophecies passed down to her and she read it about xehanort. I kinda feel like brain is the old hooded figure that takes him and sends him to the destiny islands maybe since he read the book and dies there. Robbed ansem then sends xehanort to scala plus gives him time powers. Xehanort meets eraqus there, who would be brains grandson.

    I also wonder if MoM disappeared to quadratum since he messed with history? Sora disappeared because he changed history. Was traveling to the future and meeting with xehanort the reason or did he mess with other fates as well? It does seem like he wanted the true kingdom hearts summoned. Maybe there is a connection with that and the box plus now that luxu summoned back the others, they might just need to get ava then go to quadratum via rikus route to meet up with MoM, but we’ll see.

    I wish they explained what happened to ava since she should have one of those strong darkness’s as well inside her heart.

    Yup!!! Luxu definitely took Brains body and sent Brains heart into the future and Ephemer and the ones that remember him held that hat as a medium for him to be whole like we seen with the robe. Yeah I’m good with that theory for now.

    June 2, 2021 @ 10:37 am

    The MoM has the easiest job out of everyone. He knows exactly who does what when and doesn’t have to sweat the details he doesn’t know. He knows that everything works out for his plan in the end. Basically he started the chain reaction and took a vacation at the end of the chain to wait for the plan to catch up with him.

    It’s almost like he’s letting the 7 lights and 13 darkness combine themselves over time so that he can be the final piece that will create every way to open Kingdom Hearts. Could he be trying to take control of both light and darkness for his own malicious or well meant purposes? We may not know the answers to this until the 3rd Phase of KH. LOL

    my theory:
    luxu takes brain body comes to future to scala ad caelum but fight with xehanort and loses, Brain dissapeared, xehanort continue playing with darkness. Brain/Luxu get older and change his name to braig and is transformed to a nobody: xigbar. Finally, in KH3 he get the luxu keyblade’s back.

    June 2, 2021 @ 10:44 am

    Remember how we all thought the lost pages was talking about Ava but after that cutscene with luxu and the MOM it’s pretty clear it was about luxu i mean “unable to permit disharmony, you will be disappointed by fate,and lose sight of true strength” luxu didn’t agree with the MOM making them vessels for darkness “ misreading the truth, you will venture off in secrecy” this lines up perfectly with his role and the secrets files from KH3 but the thing is he still thinks Ava is the traitor

  161. Karasu Macha
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:44 am

    Here’s a thought what if Luxu sent brains heart into the future then took his body and used it as a vessel until brains heart arrived in the future, Luxu would use his. Body for years until moving to a new vessel, brains body. Now empty becomes dormant without a heart, until brains heart arrives from the past and reunites with his body.

    So in BC we had Luxu in the KBG but he still had the same voice actor, though he was in a different body. Wut?

  183. sdbzfan1
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:55 am

    It makes sense why xehanort said that he feels like he was meant to wear that coat as the player was always meant to be another forteller as a dandelion because ava asked both the player and skuld but refused because he couldnt abandon his friends and fought in the keyblade war
    A lot of things are funny sad in kh now specifically marluxia joining the guy who got his sister killed because she also couldnt abandon him

  184. SilverJ17
    June 2, 2021 @ 10:55 am

    I’m pretty sure the whole Brain thing has to do with Brain’s heart jumping further into the future with the whole time travel thing involving one’s heart leaving their body behind, yada yada yada. The first Brain we see possessed by Luxu is likely his left behind body. The second one in Scala is Brain’s heart having reformed a new body or something like that. He’s recompleted here, basically. One is Luxu possessing his body. The other is a recompleted Brain sent forward into the future, either sometime before Xehanort’s birth or in the modern day. Considering Mickey is supposed to be heading there after the events of MoM, Scala is likely still intact. The Scala we see in KH3’s final battle is most likely a recreation of the world meant to contain Xehanort and X-blade, not the real deal Scala.

  204. kingofmonsters14
    June 2, 2021 @ 11:05 am

    well, keep this in mind about Daybreak and Scala: when Aqua turned Land of Departure into Castle Oblivion, the mountains and the hills all vanished, leaving behind a empty world with a dark hole in the back. but when it was changed back, the mountains returned. i think it’s safe to assume that when a Master changes a world, it completely changes everything; landmass, topography, possibly even animal life too.
    but there could be another explanation: he needed resources to build the city, didn’t he? on top of all the rubble, there were also the mountains, mountains that could’ve been rich in ore to build an entire city with.
    but then… why does it look like Victorian London and not Greek Marble?

  205. Jecht Talk

    Is it just me or does Skuld look like a young Xehanort’s mom.

  206. SilverJ17
    June 2, 2021 @ 11:08 am

    Also, I feel Skuld is most likely Subject X. Sterletzia is a little too important if that is indeed her being sent away. She’s, as Luxu stated, the true Dandelion. I personally think she was sent further ahead and will likely appear in a future title (KH4?) I also strongly feel Luxu/ Braig would have mentioned her in his secret reports and the same would be said about Ava. Granted, he could just be intentionally vague in his secret reports, but they’re called his secret reports for a reason so I don’t see why he would have. This aspect is why I strongly feel Subject X is neither Ava, nor Sterletzia (‘the true dandelion’ as he likely called her). Not to mention, like I said, she’s likely far too important to have been Subject X. It has to be Skuld.

  207. Sweet Lou

    I still don’t get the Xehanort comment about swearing to survive the key blade war and seeing what came after? Is this the player character memory remnants adding to his motive? I know this phrase has been discussed to death but man this kids game is killin me….

    I love how this ending connects to KH3 a lot, like Ephemer lending a hand to Sora with the dandelion’s spirits/dreameaters and Sora being connected with the dream eaters from DDD

    And then the crazy part I realized in the final boss fight of KH3, Xehanort used the power of light and we as players were shocked and then it’s shown that he himself in the past life used the power of light and still wields those powers

    Don’t assume your DREAMS are just FANTASY. If you can IMAGINE a world, BELIEVE in it… and DIVE in.

    I only played halfway into this game before I abandoned because I switched phones and lost all my data. Nomura went over the top with this. It’s so convoluted. The moment nomura introduced time travel, the series took a critical hit

    Would love for there to be a Back Cover-like version of the whole story, but then how would the player character fit in? They/we are pretty important to the plot. Maybe a character creation before it starts?

    SPOILER HERE, sorry…
    Also, do you guys think either Ephemer or Skuld realized the player was lying to them? It’s sad to think that neither of them did.

  230. A. S.L
    June 2, 2021 @ 11:17 am

    why xehanort’s mum gave him away, one possibility is that scala ad caelum is getting in trouble or getting destroyed by an unknown force, his mum feared for his safety and so sent him away to destiny island, but that tragedy happens after dark road timeline. thats why scala ad caelum is empty in KH 3.

    Let me elaborate. You are not Xehanort you are a previous incarnation of Xehanort no need to feel sorry for him. Dream Eaters are Chirithy’s they defend the keyblade wielder while they sleep THEY ARE NOT DEAD CHILDREN ALL KEYBLADE WIELDERS ARE ASLEEP LIKE VENTUS. LuXu was always obviously the traitor as he had the recussance (You all told me I was stupid for suspecting Luxu as he wasn’t a “Union Leader” The book never said Union leader it said one of the Master’s apprentices. Luxu did take over Brain’s body that’s sad….Also there’s really no reason to feel sorry for Xehanort in the first place as he has Eraquis to be there for him EVEN WHEN HE BETRAYED HIM.

    Since the PC from KHUX is a version of Xehanort…

    Does that mean Xehanort can theoretically time travel all the way back towards the Keyblade War era?

    Cause yknow, the whole “You need a version of yourself present in that time in order for you to time travel to that time” rule.

    June 2, 2021 @ 11:36 am

    So some other things that aren’t straight up said to us but are heavily implied: Luxu probably just stole Brain’s body before he knew what was going on, then Luxu, since he’s actually a good person as we see with how he reacts to the conversation with MoM, yeets Brain into the future, past when his original body will have perished. Now just a heart, he can reform with a medium and memories. Ephemer, who had the book and master defender, probably would be able to see when Brain would arrive, since MoM would have known what Luxu would do and might have made a note on it. Ephemer is also most certainly dead by the time Brain comes back because Luxu can’t skip time, he has to live through every minute so MoM can see the future and the box can be guarded. Luxu would ride out Brain’s lifespan until he has to switch, at which time Ephemer would be old and by the time Brain comes back would have perished naturally. The past tense used in reference to Ephemer by Sigurd is a heavy nudge in that direction. This also means that Brain is the ancestor of Eraqus for sure, because the Scala that Brain appears at is fully-formed and an HQ for Keyblade Masters. Brain would likely settle down, train himself and others, get back his original keyblade, the Master Defender, probably due to an edict by Ephemer left for them to follow like meeting Brain there to begin with, and sire a child. Likely Brain is the grandfather or even further back. I can’t remember if Eraqus was said to just be “descended from” a keyblade master who fought in the keyblade war, or specifically that it was his grandfather.

    Wild theory time: Skuld got yeeted into Quadratum and may even be the Nameless Star. After all, Brain did get changed, his heart replaced with another’s.

  270. Brennan Johns
    June 2, 2021 @ 11:47 am

    My take on the birth of xehanort is that both skuld and ephemer survived together and she gave birth to twins, one showing afinity for light and xehanort showing affinity to darkness. And that in fear of what may come they decided to seperate them. And that the hooded figure is the aprentice of ephemer, sigurd. Who was tasked with taking xehanort to destiny islands and watching over him. To me this means that Sigurd and Odin were classmates or comrades. The silver hair of xehanort may be a trait of ephemer and the dark hair of eraqus would be a trait of skuld. Also making the two actual brothers.

    What if skuld is the mum along with ephimer being the father who both read the book of prophecies and excilled xeonort to destiny islands so he could not fulfill his destiny, as we know he was only freed from destiny islands due to future xeonort. So xeonort was born in scala ad calum and banished to destiny islands only to return to scala ad calum unconscious on the floor. Also minor detail but xeonort and ephimer have the same colour hair.

  286. psychicmaster92
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:02 pm

    I have a few things to say. First of all, in terms of Brain getting to the future. What happened was Luxu separated Brain’s heart from his body and sent the heart to the future. Afterwards, he possessed the body left behind. It’s already been established, with or without a lifeboat, you must leave your body behind to travel through time. Luxu just took advantage of that to get a free vessel. As for the darkness Luxu fought, it’s a safe bet it escaped & traveled to the future. That’s kinda the reason it helped Maleficent time travel in the first place. So I don’t know when, but that darkness will return. Lastly, I have no idea what happened to Skuld, or whether or not she even time traveled. And before anyone says she’s subject X, which she “might”, I need to point out the recreated copy of Strelitza was sent to the future, so she could easily be subject X.

  287. Insomnious Luci

  290. Benjamin LaValley
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:06 pm

    There is another possibility with the Brian/Luxu vessel theory. Remember that when you travel through time, you’re body is stripped away from your heart, leaving heart as the only thing that travels through time. What if that Luxu made Brain’s heart travel through time, where his medium, being the hat, would reconstruct his body, and that Luxu took the body that Brain left behind as his new vessel?

    June 2, 2021 @ 12:08 pm

    I have a theory: obviously with Scala we know that the architecture is more Mediterranean… On the outside? I am wondering if it’s possible that there is an interior because All of the islands look like mountains a mountain made of structures. What if there are more buildings and an in-depth city inside the structure of scala? I think there were times where you came across a big door that looked like it led deeper into Scala so it’s possible that the interior has a different architectural style it’s like the idea with a big cruise ship where the outside looks sleek and smooth like while the inside can sometimes look like a very fancy small city or very different in simple terms like the grand staircase in the titanic. I’m thinking that there is an interior city which takes the design of a London/victorian style well as the structures covering the outside as well.

    While I do feel sympathy for those who play and enjoy the game, I’m sort of looking forward to when the english servers go off line and the game just gets the whole story theater mode. I just couldn’t get into the game and watching videos of the cutscenes doesn’t really work for me because I can’t go at my own pace. Having the theater mode will make things a lot easier for me to finally fully get the story.

    So brain becomes luxu vessel,and then the heart of brain goes to the future and revive with the memory(sigurd has knowlege cause of ephemer) and medium(his hat)?or is viceversa?(first brain goes to scala and then luxu uses him as a vessel) My god the lore is toooo much,we need a movie with narration like the melody of.memory one but with all the saga.
    Also,what is nomura going to do?because its obvious that we need to expand brains,elrena lauream etc history(hope dark road explains this,but maybe a new game with the history betwin brain in scala and sora is made).We need to conect all the timelines because i dont know what they were thinking when they made the mobile phone game lore the MOSTTT IMPORTANT OF ALL.

  309. Sojan Nedos

    I didn’t think he meant that Luxu was the traitor I thought he meant he just put the page in the book to make them all grow darkness. I honestly thought when he called luxu the traitor at the end is because he knew luxu eventually wouldnt agree with him and would try to disrupt it somehow which is what he could be doing at the end of kh3 and what you mention when he’s confronted by darkness after he sent someone through the arc

    Skuld looks similar to Xehanort’s mom, but the eye colors are different. So I’m gonna assume it’s not Skuld herself however it could be a descendent of Skuld.

    I still think Xehanort’s mother is Skuld. Because…
    1. The lifeboats don’t arrive together Laurium, Elrena and Ventus are all separated not only by space but I argue time as well. (Both Marluxia and Larxene are adults in KH:CoM)
    2. We know how much screen time Nomura gives to female characters (Ex. Kairi is less a character and more a MacGuffin for KH1 & 2) So I’m betting she arrived in Scala ad Caelum before Brain, grew up, fell in love and had a child.

    It’s interesting how the universe of Kingdom Hearts is itself a world of fiction, but characters within it refer to the universe of KH as if it is the real world, and when they talk about a world of fiction, the place they go is a real city in the real world…

    For the player’s name before being norted, will be called Onathe(pronounced Oh-nath-ay)being the name Xehanort split from “Another X(Key)”, and oath, hence return by the spirits from the past in KHIII as well as “oath to return”.

  324. sonic4life
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:30 pm

    So I don’t think Luxu went to the future. He probably stayed with Ephemer and eventually passed the Keyblade to him.
    And at this point, I think Xehanort and Eraqus are related (but they don’t know it). Xehanort’s mother looks like she could be Brain’s daughter (Eraqus’s mother). Plus Xehanort and Eraqus have the same eye color (and Brain). It is also possible Xehanort is a defendant of Ephemer

    The woman that hold xehanort is eraques mother xehanort mom is the one in final world who gave birth and died so that’s mean she adopted him knew he was a chosen one and knew that people gonna know about so she handed him to the hooded guy to take him and watch over him (I think ephemer read the book and knew that brain will come in sometime and told people about him so he can take back his keyblade and change it to scala that we know) plus it is possible the guy that walks toward ven is ephemer took him send him off to destiny island but he died there in graveyard so that means the dark inferno is his darkness or some sort

    Correction: Luxu was NOT the traitor. There never was. TMOM had set up ‘the idea’ of a traitor so mistrust and other negative/unpleasant emotions would sweep the foretellars and their unions to grease the gears of war.

    Correction #2: Dream Eaters are NOT dead keyblade wielders. They are their Chirithy’s taken the form of a dream eater to protect the dead keyblade wielder’s dreams.

    Plot twist: The blue hooded person is also Xehanort, who went back in time to make sure Xehanort was put on the right path to grow up and be in the right place for Xehanort to come back and guide him to become the Xehanort that would go back in time to put him on the right path to grow up and take baby Xehanort to raise him into the boy Xehanort would come back to guide.

    June 2, 2021 @ 12:40 pm

    There is 1 plothole….(?):
    -If, IF, Luxu took brain body then he took the mantle of Braig it wouldnt make sense, as we see Xehanorth took Terra and his features changed slightly, but after being turned into a heartless/nobody and then back to a whole he came as Old Xehanorth, if Braig did that and he went from Possesing Brain body, to nobody/heartless BACK to a whole he would of come back as Luxu…you get me?

  335. JoykillBill
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:40 pm

    I feel as if this game’s FULL story was released before KH3, the impact of that game would have definitely been more of a gut punch than it already is.

    As for the ending, I feel as if now that we know of the power of waking and the new info on the dream eater origins, it’s possible those two could be related as it made me think back to the Riku vs Dark Ventus armor fight, as he saved Sora’s sleeping heart while using the power of waking.

    So it’s possible some characters (maybe Strellitzia) who dies with a dream eater in her arms, maybe she became a dream eater version (with the white robe and everything) that Lauriam now complete, can now save using this power as Chirithy explains most keyblade wielders (except Sora) know the power of waking already, or at least Riku knew about it xD

    Does anybody else think that Ephemer chose to reincarnate instead of sleep? Maybe I’m reaching, but when he explained that your player has an essence inside of Xehanort. It made me think that what if Ephemer did that too and reincarnated in Eraqus. Which it could makes sense, in why Xehanort & Eraqus are so close as friends and why Ephemer’s new Keyblade (Master Eraqus’s key) was passed down to the younger Eraqus. But like I said maybe I’m just reaching. I love Kingdom Hearts

  342. Geargen
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:45 pm

    Regarding the MoM saying “Luxu the Traitor” we know that it’s another traitor different from the one mentionned in the Lost Page but I was wondering if it was somehow related to the “Imposter” mentionned in the 11th Luxu Secret Report. According to Luxu, there’s an imposter among the Union Leaders and this imposter is a virus in the program. Brain claims to be the virus so that means Brain is the imposter according to Luxu. However, we learned that the imposter was Ventus. What’s intriguing is that according to Luxu Brain is the imposter, but in the final quest, when he met Brain, he seemed not to know the identity of the Union Leaders. He didn’t know that Strelitzia was taken down either. Then that makes me think why does Luxu think that Brain is the imposter among the Union Leaders if he doesn’t even know the identity of the Union Leaders. It might be a little far fetched but I think that might be a clue explaining the relation between Brain and Luxu.

  343. Lancer
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:45 pm

    For Luxu being the traitor, I’m pretty sure the MoM’s Idea was to plant the idea of a traitor so that the Fortellers can have a falling out leading to the keyblade war to draw out the darkness

  344. Jacky Choco Chan
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:46 pm

    Back then when Chirithy appeared in KH3 at the Final World the soundtrack from the Dream Eaters came up. Back then it surprised me but now it definitely makes sense

  345. LivingToaster13
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:46 pm

    Another thing while playing KH1 that makes things more connected is that Sora saw the Cinderella castle never having been there before says it looks familiar at Deep Jungle similar to Xehanort expressing his feelings of how his dreams are foreign to him yet familiar also in the cutscenes and in KH2 quote it says that “a far off memory thats like a scattered dream, a scattered dream that’s like a far off memory” do you think it’s in reference to Ventus’ memories and the interaction between Ven and Aqua in KH3?

    Brains gotta be yazora if he landed at that time. Especially if luxu is now said traitor and brains goals was to be a virus in the system. Learning what he did from luxu and passing his heart through another, I’m more than positive brain did the same thing. Obviously before he conceived and whatnot. But I’m sure he still wanted to search for his friends. While brains at Scala, I think he understands what he needs to do and either telling yazora or becoming him. Hence the 2 different eyes. It’s a long shot. But I’ve been working up something a little more of a theory. I keep piecing more things together and so far the master of masters comes down to being 2 people. Riku, or the player( now xehanort). Brain was able to be a virus with luxu so. Food for thought

    You guys need to take into account the concept of consciousness and use it with this series man. It’s a bigger deal than you all realize, Xehanort being us that is. It’s how he had some knowledge of quadratum.

    June 2, 2021 @ 12:50 pm

    Dream Eater spirits aren’t fallen Wielders tho. They literally said that the Chirithy become Dream Eater Spirits to protect the sleeping hearts. Also, those keyblades at the final battle of KH3 belonged to the fallen wielders that fought in the keyblade war. Not the ones who survived by fell to sleep later in the data daybreak town.

    Because of Secret report 12, I don’t think that the scene with Luxu holding the Keyblade with Brain’s face is correct… or maybe it’s in a different time than we may think. From secret report 12 we know that Luxu took his first vessel AFTER giving MoM’s keyblade to a Union Leader (that can only be Brain, since that keyblade is later seen in Scala). Either Luxu had Brain’s face all along, or it’s a Ventus/Roxas or Sora/Vanitas thing.

    I also don’t think that Luxu was supposed to be possessed by Darkness in that moment. Luxu was supposed to hand the Keyblade to a Union Leader, as he probably did.

  355. Raizeth Metalia
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:52 pm

    Something tells me Luxu never changed bodies after shifting to Brain’s.

    Even Xigbar’s original name is Braig.

    Might be thinking too much into it, but…

    Your peer Hmk went over each piece of Dialogue, there was the only the idea of a traitor, and later the Master of Masters only referred to Luxu as the traitor as someone needed to be in the part to which then later the Master of Masters will explain that Luxu isn’t a traitor that there was infact no traitor, it was just a part of the plan that needed to be in play.

  358. Lykon
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:55 pm

    Please read secret report 12 again. Luxu gave his keyblade to a Union Leader (probably Brain, since that keyblade ends up in Scala and the Book knew that Brain would have been in Scala, this Ephmer giving instructions to greet him), so Xehanort probably took that keyblade from Scala during Dark Road.

  359. KewlImp
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:57 pm

    1. Luxu being the traitor doesn’t matter. It changes nothing. Luxu being the traitor doesn’t mean he was acting against the foretellers, other than his silence.
    2. Doesn’t matter. The former keyblade wielder turning into a dream eater doesn’t change anything. Unless we’re about to release the dream eaters, its just another point to say look this is suppose to matter more.
    3. This has some merit, but reincarnation still means nothing in the grander scheme unless we find out that Ava reincarnated and might be Sora. Their goals of friendship is a great example of the two with similar goals. But without a time frame to scale off of, it could still be thousands of years inbetween Union X and KH1.
    4. We assume that’s Brain. We don’t know how often he’s visited that spot looking for a new vessel. This again ties into the time frame of the universe. In the FMV movie, we don’t see him take off the cloak, so this could be a second or third visit when he removes his hood. I just don’t see this anything significant. Its also possible that he is only hitching a ride in Brain’s heart until he finds another suitable body.
    5. The player being incarnated into Xehanort doesn’t matter. It doesn’t change motive, it doesn’t change the actions he takes. It is meaningless.
    6. The founder of Scala is meaningless. Its a nice touch to know who founded it, but it has no impact.

    The ending was only alright. There weren’t really any honest reveals of significant lore. Nomura is not as great as a writer as people are giving him credit for. Personally, he has good ideas but doesn’t execute as well as he could with the team behind him. I wanted this to be mind blowing ending, but all I got was the same old Nomura. In the last couple of years, hes gone Shyamalan. Its about the next tease, or the next possible chapter. For anyone who loves this ending, enjoy it, but it just isn’t for me.

    Must not forget that Brain gave the Master’s Defender to Ephemer. A keyblade that can transform a place or an area (?) It’s probably how he manages to create buildings and buildings haha

  363. Lykon
    June 2, 2021 @ 12:59 pm

    Another mistake: the keyblades that help Sora in the Graveyard are from Kingdom Hearts Chi, not Union Cross. Meaning those are the wielders who DIED in the Keyblade War in the real world, not in the data simulation. The Dream Eaters are also NOT the keyblade wielders, but their Chirithys (look closely when they transform and read the dialogue), and just the ones of the wielders who are in slumber in the data world.

  364. jasmine nicole
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:00 pm

    I’m sooo mind blown by so much . I get Ephemer was Xehanort and Erquas trainer most likely. The woman who had Xehanort I’m seeing so many people ignore why does she favor Skuld? Also I looked up Xehanorts classmates name they’re all mythology names and Sigurd means snakes eyes ? And that kind of threw my mind a bit , the keyblade kind of does look like a snake eye instead of a cat eye. Also back to Yozora the two different color eyes maybe it’s a coincidence but with all of this new Info it’s making me think something new. Maybe he has a new eye color because of that I don’t even know but everything threw me off.

  365. WillYum Rogers
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:02 pm

    Sora is the reincarnation of Ephemier. (However you spell it lol) why else would he pop up in kh3 in an all white background. Why else would the dream eaters just flock to Sora? They sensed his presence and Sora being Sora they all clicked. . And Xehanort (player character) said Sora reminded him of an old friend. Our character was best friends with Ephemier. Idk may be a reach but it does kinda make sense

  371. KingRavo 15
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:10 pm

    It makes so much sense now, how Xemnas said he chose Larxene and Marluxia, he knew them subconsciously…..

    but then there are the other 2- Demyx and Luxord, he said he chose them too, even before Marluxia and Larxene.
    Even reincarnation is a bit far fetched, since how would Xemnes recognize them if they don’t have the same face.
    Luxords actions surely put him on a similar path with Brain, both wanting to save their worlds people from certain doom by doing something in another world, Luxord being suspicious of Xigbar.
    But in that case, what do Demyx and Ephemer share, Ephemer built a new world after his one ended, this makes no sense for Demyx…..

    unless he comes from the future, being the thing that remains after both quadratum and our world ended, but why is he here?
    Makes sense only if the world hasn’t ended jet or he ran away to rather then building a new world he decided to come to the past to live out his days here.
    He’s not even trying to stop the end, Maybe he sees it as inevitable.
    Even after all that, how would Xemnas know who they were?
    (Sorry if English was bad.)

  372. Hector Santos
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:10 pm

    I didn’t understand the whole Luxu-Brain thing, so I investigated a little and I went back to the Secret Reports in KH3. The last 2 are written by Luxu and the 12th report explains how he bequeathed the Gazing Eye to one of the Union Leaders, and Luxu himself starts the process of changing from vessel to vessel until Xehanort comes and the Gazing Eye returns to him. So what I think this means is that Luxu didn’t possess Brain, rather Brain is the first keyblade wielder to own the Gazing Eye after Luxu. It does make sense because Brain ended up in Scala ad Calum and that’s where the Gazing Eye ended up in its walls

    Luxu being the traitor wasn’t that big a shock, just a confirmation for me. Ever since I saw Back Cover and the Foretellers kept suspecting each other I immediately thought ‘what if it’s Luxu? He’s not hanging around at all so we don’t know what he’s doing’ and I hadn’t even paid attention to X until the end of 3 at that point.
    I thought it was more interesting where Lauriam and Elrena ended up since it means they were in Dwarf Woodlands and Enchanted Dominion during the events of BBS.
    I also wonder if Ephemer was jumped forward a few minutes or if he actually ‘experienced’ the entire destruction.
    I also wonder if Brain is in a past version of Scala, Scala in the present (the one we know is from Xehanort’s youth so it could actually look different now) or a version of it in Unreality.

  381. eduardo solis tinoco
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:20 pm

    As for Young Xehanort “familiar thoughts” during MoM conversation, He stated at one point of KH3 (I believe during his dissentigration on the Nort Court), that though he will lose all his memories of the future, his path has been “etched” into his heart (either by himself or old goat), so he’ll follow the road to become Old Xehanort “completing the loop”.
    Specially with the black coat mention, I always believed that that was what the re:mind scene was referring to.

    June 2, 2021 @ 1:27 pm

    Mmmm fun fact: In the main saga, we know that during the Keyblade War, the X-Blade was divided into 7 Lights and 13 Darknesses. However, in the Union X Saga this fact never was mentioned, until in this finale, where we knows that Darkness divided himself into 13 entities, so I wonder if it has something to do with the X-Blade, maybe is by using the weapon that Darkness managed to become a whole and having 13 parts of himself in order to mantain a sense of individuality and at the same time, 7 Lights were formed too.
    Anyway, MoM said that it was his intention to lock the 7 of the 13 Darknesses inside himself and his 6 Apprentices and in fact at the end of Kingdom Hearts III, Eraqus wanted to do a new game with 7 Black Pieces, which should represent in fact the Master of Masters and the 6 Apprentices. The 6 remaining Darkness we know that:
    – 4 are blocked into the Data World of Daybreak Town, thanks to the Player’s sacrifice;
    – 1 is inside Ventus and became Vanitas;
    – 1 was confronted by Luxu and we don’t know what happened to it after the battle.

    Anyway, Darkness managed to spread in the real world as we see in Dark Road, so I wonder if the Sixth Darkness managed to escape from Luxu’s fight, who knows.

    As for young Xehanort, I wanted you to remember that what he said in the Flashback in Re:Mind, about feeling familiar the Black Coat and what he supposed to do and to go, is because he was possessed by his future self and travelled through the time in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. After Sora fell into the Darkness, Young Xehanort told him that he is going to return to his own time with no memories of what happened in this travel “but” the feelings are carved into his heart setting the path for him, so it is not related to his past life as the Player in Union X.

    When you think about it the story kind of went full circle.

    Luxu is suppose to pass the keyblade onto another, regardless if brain or luxu or possessed brain did so they passed the keyblade onto the person who has remnants of Brain and Ephemers friend.

    It’s just interesting to me

    xehanort could be ephemar’s son. they didn’t show what happened to skuld. that could be her in a few years handing over xehanort because she didn’t want him at scala. maybe something happened to ephemar. xehanorts interest in subject x could tie into this.

  408. tanny danner
    June 2, 2021 @ 1:47 pm

    i’ve heard theories that brain’s heart was sent to the future while his body was taken by luxu so there’s two brains since brain’s medium would be ephemer. but there could be a possibility that brain was basically freed from luxu and ended up in scala after luxu took over another vessel (like braig)?

    another crazy theory i had is that brain ended up starting a life in scala and xehanort’s mother is an offspring of his. ephemer on the other hand maybe found skuld and they had children who ended up having eraqus (ephemer could be eraqus’s grandfather that he was so close to) so it would make sense that eraqus and xehanort became so close because they would basically be connected to ephemer, brain, and the player

  409. ZachElamOfficial

    June 2, 2021 @ 1:57 pm

    This is a messy theory but: Is it possible that when we defeat Xigbar in KH3 it caused Brain to return like when you defeat a nobody in current day KH/post KH3? And that’s how he’s in Scala? I mean we don’t know if we went to Scala in real life or what version it was when fighting Xenhort. If that makes sense…

    Skulled future version is the Mother of Xehanort ?

    Brain/Luxu = revealing us there are the same and has both keyblades dont forget that and he ends in Scala in the future so why he didnt get older or something like that ???

    Union x is the past of Dreameaters.

    Our Character is in the heart of Xehanort that is why he was a good person in the end and not total evil.

    Master of Master is a blind amd crazy psycopath and would do anything to kill darkness because he wants revange.

    Dunno if anyone already mentioned this, but the real-life ark is incomplete- it only rips your heart from your body in a metaphorical “sudoku with the keyblade” but without the actual sudoku. I assume the body in the ark gets dissolved. The process of time traveling is still the same, the whole “heart without a body can time travel as it desires”, so what I assume happened is that without an ark to do the thing and Luxu being impressed by Brain, he simply used No Name to rip his heart from his body the “usual way”. Brain’s body remained in the past and Luxu took over it, “passing on the keyblade” in his own way and keeping Brain alive, and Brain later on regenerates his body the MoM way: using his hat as a medium and the knowledge of the Book of Prophecies / someone with memories of him- potentially Ephemer kept his memory alive?

    Also, someone likely already told you this but Dream Eaters arent dead kids. Theyre Chirithies protecting sleeping hearts- I like to consider them the emblem heartless to the pureblood’s chirithy since the mechanics are apparently similar.

    I now wonder when exactly Brain woke up in? The BG implies similar timeline to Fetusnort, but like. I very lowkey hope hes in current-day scala lmao. Mostly bc I love him and I need more of him. The one thing that made me go mmmmmm is that the whole process of what MoM wanted to do with his apprentices looks a LOT like what happened to Riku. He became a light strong enough to use darkness without being corrupted by it…

    Also, Strel cant be Subject X. The JP character file says she has black hair. Still assuming Skuld, potentially Ava.

    PS: Whats more accessible than a mobile game? :’D Its gonna go offline and probably remain free, its way easier to access than paying 200 bucks for it… I do want a remaster but mostly bc I want this voiced, but not bc its hard to find or get. Especially since offline mode is literally just a theater mode. you wont even have to gacha your way through it anymore |D

  424. Bunnearix
    June 2, 2021 @ 2:13 pm

    It might be possible that Brian, in Scala ad Caelum, had end up meeting with someone who is going to steal his body and then steal more of them in different points of time towards Braig/Xigbar. And that “someone”, I possibly think that his true name before he became as Luxu is “Loki”.

  425. Esteban
    June 2, 2021 @ 2:13 pm

  426. Danothyus1
    June 2, 2021 @ 2:13 pm

    So 6 darkness are trapped in the foretellers and MoM, 4 are trapped in data daybreak, 1 escaped with Ventus(Vanitas), 1 was ignored by Luxu and 1 “died” with the main character.

    My question now is: Is Xehanort darkness the same as the one from unionX or is the one that Luxu ignored possessed later in his life?

    another interesting thing in the remind cutscene with MoM and YX is that MoM says he is a lost master and YX is like “lost…. master?” cause he probably remembers them from his time as the player. This shit is so whack lmao

    Honestly, all the Xehanort retconning is getting exhausting.
    Nomura can give him the most pitiable backstory, the most ideal end goal, and even MAKE HIM US, but I still don’t like him.
    He wrecked people’s lives, several of which were children, and he’s not even sorry.
    He’s smart, he should know better in spite of the pain he went through, and I’m tired of Nomura trying to pile on reason after reason to make him seem relatable when he shows no regret.

    Ok, getting off the soapbox now…

    June 2, 2021 @ 2:32 pm

    About the whole Brain and Luxu/Brain thing here’s my theory, I think that maybe Luxu took his body but sent Brain’s heart to the future with the arch, then Brain’s heart formed a new body in that future while Luxu used his body for a while but then by the time Brain formed a new body Luxu already jumped into another body.

    At least from what was explained about the whole travelling using the unfinished arch it makes sense, the arch can only transport your heart because it’s unfinished, but with people having memories of you and a medium your heart can create a body, take a physical form again, so maybe Luxu after taking Brain’s body and sending his heart into the future, at some point gave the hat that would work as the medium to Ephemer.

    The memories would be provided by either Ephemer himself if he’s still alive, or the people of Scala through the stories told about Brain and the book of prophecies left by Ephemer if he is dead by that time, or maybe even by Luxu if he already jumped to another body to become a teacher at Scala perhaps, because his keyblade, and thus the gazing eye, has to be there to be bequeathed to xehanort and be there hanging in that room inside Scala. Also Luxu probably has to be there too to witness Brain arriving there, because the book of prophecies is the only way I can imagine Ephemer knew the precise day and time in which brain would arrive to be greeted by Sigurd.

    I think you’re over complicating the Brain stuff. It’s more than likely malicious intent from Luxu, as it’s obvious Brain has little idea what’s going on when he comes to in Scala. Sigard says “it was decided” he’d come to scala, so it probably wasn’t his intention of showing up there

  445. Lord Caim
    June 2, 2021 @ 2:44 pm

    Ephemer has the book of prophecies so he paves the way for Scala ad caelum. Takes Xehanort as a baby and travels to the future so he can fullfill his role in the future. He then dies.

    Having knowledge of the future he also tries to guide Sora? if that’s true then:

    Ephemer is the voice that Sora hears at the beginning of KIngdom Hearts 1 and at the End of the World. This very same voice is the one he hears at Kingdom hearts 3 “Do you need Some help”?

    If Xehanort is the Player in reincarnate, who’s to say that Kiari isn’t Ava in reincarnate. That would explain the two sharing a pink motif and why when Luxu used the power of waking, he was only able to revive 4 of the 5 masters. Ava chose to be reincarnated instead of being put to sleep

    I’m glad you didn’t instantly think the master of masters was batshit crazy evil. So many people I saw thought that instantly when they seen the end of union x.
    As soon as I saw I was he’s not a good guy but he’s not inherently evil. This man really didn’t wanna truly sacrifice his students, he wanted to be able to save the world. That’s why he said specifically about how no matter how many worlds there are ,there will always darkness.
    The next villians may become way more sympathetic then Xehanort.

    My guess is Luxu yeeted Brain’s heart out of his body, put his heart in the lifeboat/arc, and sent him to the future; after all, anyone who uses the lifeboat/arc will lose their body, so Brain has no use for it. So, Luxu took Brain’s body, traveled off-world after bringing Ephemer and Skuld back. This theory I’m 99% sure is correct; after all, how else would Luxu have Brain’s body in the past and then have Brain show up in the future at the same age? Brain’s body was reconstructed in the future using his hat and Sigurd’s memories of him (this is assuming they come from the Book of Prophecies).
    I don’t think that Brain knew exactly what he was doing when he was sending the arcs into the future. Luxu kind of makes it clear because of how he questions Brain and Brain is like “I dunno, I hoped it would work.” Luxu praises him anyway and says it’s a shame he was to die here, and then DEFIES HIS ROLE and interferes. He was supposed to pass down his Keyblade to one of the Union Leaders; instead, he takes one of their bodies.
    As for Skuld and Ephemer, maybe Luxu set a timer so the lifeboats would depart after he left with Brain’s body and send Ephemer and Skuld to the future. That would be how Skuld (assuming she IS Subject X) ended up in Radiant Garden–Luxu (or another Keyblade wielder with the Book of Prophecies/memories of her) brought her back there. Obviously, it didn’t work with Ephemer, so maybe his pod was damaged in the rockfall, while Skuld DID successfully get sent to the future (again, assuming she is Subject X).
    Luxu has a bleeding heart. Heck, he’s holding one on the Union X title screen. When the Master tells him not to let his emotions get in the way, and Luxu leaves, he doesn’t say anything. He doesn’t want to sacrifice all these innocent key-kids. And then he interferes with the Dandelions, sends the True Dandelion to the future, and interacts with Brain when he WASN’T SUPPOSED TO. “It’s a shame you’ll die here.” And then he takes Brain’s body and throws Brain’s heart into an arc. Darkness says “You aren’t supposed to interfere.” And Luxu says “For the sake of the Dandelions? I’m not doing this for them. I’m doing this for me.” Because he doesn’t want to sacrifice them. He ensures Brain is reconstructed in Scala years later with his hat. He rescues Skuld (assuming she’s Subject X) from Ansem’s lab in Radiant Garden. He watches over Elrena and Lauriam in Organization 13, and keeps an eye on Ventus (and Roxas/Xion) in BBS (and Days).
    I wonder if Xigbar!Luxu was the one who originally found Ventus in the Keyblade Graveyard and brought him to Old Man Xehanort. The figure that walked up to him certainly didn’t look like Old Man Xehanort, and in order to be reconstructed in the future, someone with memories of you + a Waypoint would be needed to reconstruct ALL of the Dandelions. So that kind of implies it was Luxu for all of them–Skuld, Lauriam, Ventus, Elrena, and whoever the True Dandelion is. Brain seems to be an exception–brought back by Sigurd instead of Luxu (unless of course Sigurd IS Luxu. Because apparently Luxu can also be anyone). 
    Isn’t it strange that Elrena and Lauriam both end up in Organization 13? Who could have possibly predicted that these two would have wills strong enough to continue on even after becoming Nobodies? It’s almost like someone who knew them from a time before orchestrated an event that would cause them both to lose their hearts–and then keep them close at hand until the chosen time when Darkness would be struck down for good…
    Anyway I think I’ve gone on enough of a tangent.

    Since Xehanort is the player character reincarnated, I wouldn’t be surprised if Nomura decided to fuck with us further and claim that Eraqus is Ephemer reincarnated given how the two were good friends. Also at the end of KHMOM, Mickey was tasked by Yen Sid to look for info on Quadratum in Scala. If we’re trying to tie everything together, maybe Brain will be helping Mickey with his search.

    Could Luxu have displaced Brain’s heart and sent it to the future where memories and his hat as a medium created a body for him to inhabit? That would leave Brain’s original body for Luxu to inhabit. This seems like a decent deal for them to have struck, Brain gets to escape and potentially see his friends and Luxu gets to start his body hopping hobby.
    Any thoughts?

    Loved the video, it summarizes things so well and definitely helped me get a clearer idea of what happened, especially with what happened to Brain, I was so confused what exactly Luxu did to take his body (I seriously thought he killed him, though technically I guess that could’ve still happened) since Brain apparently shows up in the future and I like your theory about them striking a deal of some kind.

    I thought I’d go ahead and ask, if you feel like you could make a video about it, I think Game Central Station and it’s games could be explored more and how it can be compared to the worlds of Kingdom Hearts. I only bring it up because it’s very easy to overlook it as just filler, but I feel like Nomura has been subtly using those game worlds to explain how Kingdom Hearts works. More specifically, how the cy-bugs seem very similar to heartless/darkness, how “going turbo” is similar to “meddling” (remember when THAT used to be important?) and, what I find most interesting, how the code rooms of games are similar to the hearts of worlds (and probably by extension Kingdom Hearts as well) and how King Candy used it to possibly be the first person to control the heartless.

    All I can imagine is Xehanort dying, then going, “alright, life’s over, everybody out!” and every player just comes running out like a clown car, and then jump right into Sora, who just keeps waving them on and telling them to hurry as all his friends just gawk in confusion.

  475. Jose Buenrostro

    Great video, but one thing. In that scene between Luxu and the Darkness it says “after the war six of us remain” implying M.O.M, Luxu and all the Fortellers already each have one of the 7 strongest Darkness within them.

    brain is the one that took baby Xehanort…Skuld is the lady who is Xehanort’s mom. They already confirmed that they all teleported to different eras soo it would make sense for brain to be older then her. plus look at the character’s design(skuld and Xehanort’s “mom”). It would also make sense for Brain to be taking the baby because she would trust a friend. Also are we not gonna talk about ven being in the badlands with a shadowy figure walking to him and then switching to luxu. and finally. We know venitus is just darkness with a form cuz of ventus but could he also be a part of the darkness that possessed ven to Strelitzia’s death might be an excuse for his return again in the future. just my thoughts tho

  477. ShiningGurren
    June 2, 2021 @ 4:00 pm

    The line during Xehanort and MoM’s talk of “I sense where I’m supposed to go, what I’m supposed to do.” and “even this coat, there’s something familiar about it, as if I’m meant to wear this.” Its actually referencing that he already went to the future and saw all the things Master Xehanort did and he wore the coat before. He doesn’t have the memories but some feelings imprinted on him when he returned to his own time.

    It seems like you completely and utterly missed the point of the reference symbol. Also, Strilitzia can’t be Subject X because Subject X has black hair. And I’m not sure what you meant by saying Ava recruited Keyblade weilders to help him with building it. All of the wielders beside the ones involved with the Union leaders either died or went to sleep.

    I think all of the Keyblade wielders that Ava saved were all of the Dandelions who ended up in Data Daybreak Town, and since the only people who were able to escape were the union leaders and Elrena, then any help Ephemer received in building Scala would have come from others most likely. Who those people are, I have no idea…

    Maybe the Master committed a taboo of nature and was banished to Quadratum, which is why he vanished, dimmed, and faded without a trace, just like Sora. On another subject, I think the medium for each of the foretellers to rebuild their bodies (and for the UX Union leaders) are in the box.

    Okay. Kingdom Hearts story is stupid. It’s always been stupid. That being said, the mainline story at least tried to connect everything in earnest.

    But this….this is-
    “Nomura smoked way too much weed”

    You can continue a story without making it so convoluted and disconnected. I don’t understand why Nomura thinks “plot” is the only part of storytelling. I play Kingdom Hearts for the gameplay and the characters.

    Not this adolescent drug trip shit.

  512. Ulysses the Limitless Spirit
    June 2, 2021 @ 5:05 pm

    What’s truly insane is that Nomura VERY casually dropped a hint about the Player and Xehanort in an interview months in advance. As the director of the series’ development, Nomura could be called the FIRST player of KHUX. And who, exactly, did he say replaced Sora as the KH character he identifies most with? Xehanort. Honestly, it’s almost like he was waving the twist right in front of our faces. This, from the man who kept close to everything about Roxas tantalizingly hidden for six long years!

  518. Chill Jazy
    June 2, 2021 @ 5:21 pm

    I think that hooded figure that took Xehanort is Brain. Once Brain had landed in Scala Ad Caelum Sigurd was escorting him to headquarters possibly to explain a role for Brain that Epehemer had left to watch over the Player. As well as getting the Master Defender keyblade and continuing to build up Scala Ad Caelum as the world for keyblade wielders. So in future Scala, Brain’s role was to protect Xehanort as his heart is connected to the other union leaders as his days were finalized. It was then upon Xehanort’s role to find the other Union leaders.

  519. Sivrn Val
    June 2, 2021 @ 5:27 pm

    The player character from Union X being part of Xehanort make the whole Daybreak Town tower underneath ‘fake’ Scalla make so much more sense.

    I don’t think the Dream Eaters are from the dead keyblade weilders from the war, I think they’re the Danelions. It said once the lifeboats are used then the world will go to sleep. What if those are the Dandelions that were left in the world when it went to sleep. They didn’t die, they went to sleep with the world and became Dream Eaters. Specifically only the Dandelions only. Which would make more sense when the Keyblades rescued Sora along with Ephemer. They were the Keyblades of the Dream Eaters of the Dandelions and Ephemer became the leader of the Dandelions

  548. Pryexel 48
    June 2, 2021 @ 7:04 pm

    I’m convinced that the city Brain ended up in is not Scala ad Caelum but rather The World That Never Was long before the Original Organization IIX claimed it. Here are my reasons:

    1. The color of the city, as well as the architecture (like the street signs) more closely resembles TWTNW than Scala.
    2. The line spoken by the soldier at 24:30 seems to me more like a list of achievements rather than saying that the city is called Scala ad Caelum.
    3. Assuming that Scala and this city are separate worlds, Scala seems more like a school or university kind of place. The city, however (as far as we know) just seems to be a place for people to stay and live in. And before TWTNW was abandoned, it would have been a place for people to stay and live.
    4. The Xehanort looks to have been born from this city. (20:54 Notice the pattern on the ground?) If Xehanort was taken away from the city as a baby and then was sent to Scala as a young boy, I’d doubt that they would’ve changed the city to a series of islands in that short of a time. (Then again, Castle Oblivion says otherwise.)

    Now I can see what can disprove this whole thing in that how is Brain in an earlier WTNW while Luxu is currently using his body? I don’t have a good answer to this. The best guess I have is that a vessel was created for Brain for him to end up in like an ancient version of a Replica. (Perhaps this helped inspired Vexen’s Replica Program?) But until we get more details, this is where I stand on this city’s identity.

  549. CrazyPenguin
    June 2, 2021 @ 7:07 pm

    I’m pretty sure Luxu was confirm as the traitor, when the passage of the book of prophecy state that the one who has the sigil is the traitor. And the sigil is alway an ‘X’ which is in Luxu’s name

    I do not like the fact that the Player character reincarnates as Xehanort. It is not a satisfying ending to the character. It might explain Xehanort’s interest in the people from the Age of Fairy Tales, but it undermines everything Player stood for. Player became the antithesis of everything he stood for. In his next life, he abused, manipulated and hurt the people who were his friends (Ventus, Lauriam, Elrena, and Skuld (still assuming that she’s Subject X)). That’s all sorts of messed up.
    And Young Xehanort, Ansemnort, and Xemnas actually fought Sora and Riku’s Dream Eater companions, meaning they may have attacked Player’s _other_ buddies in the Dandelion Party.

    June 2, 2021 @ 8:55 pm

    So does that mean the Nightmare Dream Eaters we fight KH3D are keyblade wielders who died and succumbed to darkness? And we just flat out kill them?

    Also, I think the blue-robed old man who took Xehanort to Destiny Islands was an elderly Ephemer. I don’t know why or how, but if it was then this makes this even more depressing.

    I truly believe that when ephemer passed on, he got reincarnated as Sora. “ I have been having these weird thoughts lately. Like Is any of this Forreal? Or not?”

    Plus ephemer helped sora but a lot of other reasons as well.
    Thoughts on that theory?

    Also….the reason why he took liking to Eraqus because he looks like Brain…

    I think Brain’s heart was sent into the future via Ark, then Luxu took possession of his body. Once in the future, Brain’s heart was able to reconstruct his body thanks to Sigurd, who seemed to know he’d be there.

    So the whole Brain/Luxu timeline is obviously left kind of unclear deliberately, so I’m trying to not even question it right now…

    But how did Lauriam and Elrena end up in Dwarfen Woodlands and Dark Dominion respectively, and when? What were their mediums and who kept their memories? Do we know? Should I know and just forgot?

    And also… This may just be my shitty memory, but what happened to the Foretellers? MoM was raising them to be ideal vessels, then they’re all trying to figure out who the traitor is (Luxu) and eventually they end up in the Keyblade Graveyard after KH3. But what happened to them in between?

    And also also, how is Ephemer the “first Keyblade master”? And why does Scala look so different here?

    June 3, 2021 @ 1:44 am

    I honestly think the reveal of Player in fact essentially becoming Xehanort is perhaps even better than MoM’s plans & the traitor reveal. It’s more immediately… personal for lack of better words. I mean, it was right in our faces the entire time. The clues were right there. But it could easily turned ANOTHER way. Haha. (Xehanort being an anagram for Another is old news)

    Now, to spread a thought I’ve seen elsewhere, the 4 Darkness, may have stayed with Xehanort hence his increased innate darkness or at least darkness detection, and the 4 darkness may be why the 4 classmates get bodies later on.

    I believe Luxu pushed Brain Heart to a life boat so that Brain could time travel to the Future of Scala Ad Calem, and thus Luxu can continue doing what he needed to do, which was to bring back the foretellers so that they can be possessed by the remaining Darkness! And to forever seal them away within their strong willed hearts! Also this ending had me feeling so much that I cried! I also believe that we the player may be the one to help Riku save Sora should Riku fail to do so, maybe Kingdom Hearts 4 will have our own character creation in the future of Kingdom Hearts 4! That would be very nice to be able to have an adventure to save Sora!

    The version of Scala ad Caelum we visit in KH3 is actually within Xehanort’s heart, and is the way he remembers it when he was young.
    It is not clearly said WHEN does Braine appear in Scala, but it could be the Scala before Xehanort’s time OR after Xehanort’s time. The architecture style is surely different to the Scala we know, which could be a clue.

    Just a personal opinion but even though the place seems like the same as when we see baby Xehanort, I would be super hyped if Braine was in the current Scala ad Caelum (which would leads us towards Mickey coming to Scala in order to find clues about the Ancient Keyblade Masters as it is referred at the end of Melody of Memory)

    So wait 13 darknesses, the foretellers plus the MoM are supposed to be strong enough to hold one. Riku has mastered this, Terra overcame to some extent, Aqua lived for a long time in the realm of darkness, Sora didn’t let darkness control him, Ventus took in a darkness and Xehanort/the player was trapped with 4 darknesses and reincarnated. Does that sound right?

    Kingdom Hearts hasn’t been good since KH2 because dumbass story dumps like these have turned the series into a nonsensical joke. The only thing more annoying than Nomura making this shit up as he goes is the lack of giving a shit with the characters, worlds and combat after KH2. Even Yoko’s soundtracks feel phoned in now by this point. Don’t Think Twice was off kilter and Face My Fears was aweful. I just want this series to make sense and be good again. It’s time to reboot and throw out these characters and lore after Kingdom Hearts 4, Nomura! Or, you know, JUST END THE SERIES!

    Kingdom Hearts 1, Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 2 form a perfect trilogy and the story should have ended at KH2. Every other KH game was a money laundering scheme and a mistake. Really sucks the Osaka team has been in charge of this series since the Tokyo team left to go make the cancelled FF13 Versus and then was put on FF7 Remake.

  676. Leo Rodríguez
    June 3, 2021 @ 6:03 am

    The player’s heart being reincarnated in Xehanort might be the dumbest thing this series has ever witnessed, given the fact that Sora was a way more viable option. I mean, if the player had reincarnated in Sora, many things would make much more sense: his deep connection with Ven and how their hearts were connected all along since the distant pass, how he could connect and become such good friends with the dreameaters since they were allies long ago, the entirety of the player’s persona and how he is selfless and would do anything to save his friends would resonate way more with Sora’s same selfless personality and how he also would do anything for his friends (which would make mroe sense than, uh, Xehanort, the dude who kinda freakin yeets half the universe into oblivion) and that graveyard scene with the fallen wielders and Ephemer, aside from the relationship he built in the sleeping worlds, they would also be conneted because of the heart Sora is based off, the player, and Ephemer would appear once again to help his long lost friend. I just think that the Xehanort thing was just Nomura telling us: “hey, don’t think it’s over, do not dare to forget about Dark Road, that other MOBILE GAME that will have critical info!”
    Anyway, UX is really one of the best stories thsi series has seen, and the ending, even tho I dont like that Xehanort reincarnation nonsense, is a solid 10/10 I mean, I cried like a fucking baby like 5 different ties through this shit, and its a mobile game. Imagine if this had been a full-on 3d game like the others, with voiced cutscenes, a non so gambling gameplay and just the production the story deserves. Fingers crossed so that this game gets the same treatment as CoM and goes from mobile to consoles with the glory it deserves. What I’m lowkey wishing for is a Yoko Taro x Nomura game, just imagine the story, the crazyness, and most importantly, THE PAIN DUDE, THE PAIN.
    To anyone who has played the game through like myslef, it was a pleasure fellow wielders.

    The dreameater reveal in tangent with Xehanort being part of the player changed my entire perspective of Dream Drop Distance and the inclusion of young xehanort. He was still having those dreams when he was young, he was the closest connection to the original Keyblade wielders and in turn, the Dreameaters

  679. Dark Innovator
    June 3, 2021 @ 6:09 am

    Am I the only one that hopes that the Player, in whatever form they are later reborn after Xehanort, will recomplete in some form and rejoin the Union Leaders in the future? Unless… the Player Character ends up fighting with the Foretellers.

    Ironically, I feel like the Master of Masters’ goal with expanding the world, is essentially stretching the Darkness thin so that it alone can never gained a collective consciousness.

    Actually, think about the Land of Departure and Castle Oblivion. Scala makes a lot more sense if you think of the Keyblade being used, at least to alter the surface area.

    I have a theory that Skuld and Ephemer are the parents of Xehanort. 👀👀

  691. Jonathan Lopes
    June 3, 2021 @ 8:00 am

    So to get this straight. MoM is trying to get the darkness to take on vessels so they can defeated or returned to their original purposes. Meanwhile, Luxu helped Brain secure the lives of his friends in exchange for a new body later on(I think). Ephemer becomes the first keyblade master and establishes Scada Ad Cailum where Xehanort trains to become a keyblade wielder. It also looks like we will see Brain whenever we actually go to Yozora’s world as shown in the trailer(maybe not though idk) the ending of Khux pretty much solved nothing and when we get the next installment of kh I’m sure that trend will continue.

  692. Xan Saibot
    June 3, 2021 @ 8:09 am

    One fun fact: Sora destroyed one original darkness already lol. It was Vanitas! Since Vanitas was extracted from Ventus as being of pure darkness, and Ventus’s heart was so strong to resist this darkness, that totally makes Vanitas original Darkness!

    I haven’t been following Union X as closely, but is there any chance of Ephemer and Skuld being Sora’s parents? xd Would make Ephemer showing up at the end of KH3 to save Sora that much more special, and also solve that parent-mystery

    Okay…. so I wanted to suggest Brain may be Eraqus or even his grandfather based on appearances but if he got dropped off around the time X made it there I have a theory.

    Brain, having been ditch by Luxu for a new vessel(thus explaining why he doesn’t seem possessed) is transported by the device due to the memory of those that are in the then present. Precisely Luxus own memory and the sleeping memory of X themselves as they see in there dreams.
    Heck Xehanort being X actually makes sense why Luxu chose to manipulate instead of possessing them. Perhaps they couldn’t.
    And the addition of Xemnas trying to find his friends. Whatever was left of Terra resonated with whatever was left of X thus bringing out those traits.
    Heck a lot of the Xehanort and Terra stuff become darker from this as well.

  704. Israel
    June 3, 2021 @ 9:59 am

    I believe Brain has Luxu heart and he’s only playing the par or his heart takes a backseat to Brains only coming out when necessary or after many jumps like when Xehanort was born it would make sense that once he there he was well and lived out his life become the keyblade master passing it down through strong hearted vessels and having the book of prophecy knew about the importance of Xehanort so in the last legs of a vessel now old he is the hooded figure that took baby Xehanort to the Islands for took care while grow to self dependence while his conviction grew knowing he’d be met by brown robe and taken to Sacla so he could later on inherit the No Name as the book said. I know many parents in anime and games are pretty irresponsible but I can only see the Xehanorts mother giving up her child to the wise old ruler of Scala not some random stranger.

    it didn’t look like the keyblade weilders COMBINED with their chirithies, just that the chirithies become spirits and the weilders went to sleep – like Ventus was for most of the franchise
    chirithies have always been dream eaters, it was revealed a long time ago – it’s this transformation that caught us off-guard

    June 3, 2021 @ 12:11 pm

    A somewhat logical theory for why there are no mountains in Scala.

    Obviously when you put something into a glass of water, the water rises because whatever you put in it is now taking up space.

    Put this into a much larger scale with a whole town being destroyed and basically sunk, the water levels will rise pretty drastically, maybe even so much to the point where only the highest mountaintops are visible above the water.

    If this is correct, then those mountaintops were built upon to eventually become the different islands of buildings and clocktowers in Scala (and there would probably be a lot more shown in KH3 if it wasn’t for technology limitations).

  737. daniel Ocean Smith
    June 3, 2021 @ 12:48 pm

    Weird question… what are the chances that kingdom hearts is the bridge to quadratium or maybe that the M.o.M. Used KH to make quadratum?
    It’s a weird concept, but why else would taking control over kingdom hearts allow you to shape reality? Maybe because you are making a new separate fictional reality? I mean no one ever explicitly stated that kingdom hearts was anything more then a world that is the heart of all worlds. Technically the realm of darkness could be it as it allows links to every world in kh1 and we’ve been shown it connects everything by the ability to use corridors of darkness for travel.
    Now, If KH is actually is the realm of darkness then that would explain why they keep ending up there from going through the doors to KH, like in 1 where the door riku went through lead to the realm of darkness even tho it was supposed to lead to KH because that is where Aqua was and she saw riku after all. Then in KH 2 when riku and sora ended up on the dark beach after beating xemnas in the entrance to KH.
    But if KH was actually a way to make your own reality, it would explain why the M.o.M would know about the fictional reality, cus that would be what it was last used to create, possibly by him as a place to hide out while all the KH series events happened, and it would explain why KH is the heart of all worlds. Because it was literally what made them all originally.
    Wouldn’t explain why the xehanort twins kept accidentally going to the realm of darkness instead of KH but still a interesting thought

    In KH3 One of the xehanort said something about him traveling through time and talking to his youngerself at the cost of losing his physical form, I think but Brian didn’t lose his…… it could have been something close to xehanorts way of traveling through time but with no cost.

    Would it be too crazy to assume Xehanort is a descendant of Ephemer?

    My only two pieces of evidence is the hair, and the fact that the building his mother is in is clearly Scala ad Caelum.

    That would also explain the friendship between Eraqus and Xehanort.

    One is a descendant of Brain, the other a descendant of Ephemer.

  751. DomRocc
    June 3, 2021 @ 2:58 pm

    Im just realizing this:

    The Brain we have known could be the original replica. Luxus original semblance. Bear with me..

    Luxu’s name is obviously a place holder because it bears the sigil within the name. Braig, now clearly derives his name from Brain, OR vice versa…

    Much like the Riku replica, we may have been witnessing an incredibly intelligent replica, guided by Luxus hand that attained the point of self sacrifice by knowledge he was abnormal and having made string connections to those he cared for. Wanting to become the virus, being the last one in Daybreak Town. Luxu even seems to admire Brain (a creation of his mind ironically) as he realizes he fully formulated the only plan possible to save the ones he grew to care for. In this way, the post credit scenes show us 2 ‘Brains’, one in a different Scala and one in the Badlands, and are given ‘ An Oath To Return’ just like in ReMind. Possibly signaling Brain being, or having a connection to Yozora, someone who no longer bears a true resemblance to what they were

The children themselves are not dream eaters, just the chirithy, although it was expected a long time ago when it was revealed (when player picks up chirithy) that they were being prepared to protect the childen in some unknown event.. the event just now being revealed.

    June 3, 2021 @ 6:46 pm

    Spoiler alert: Sora is xehanorts light. And Riku is his darkness. Together they make the master of masters, and everything is actually a dream-like premonition young xehanorts is having because he has the power of traveling in people’s dreams. His mom had the power of seeing into the future, that’s why when xehanorts taps into his “dreams” he can time travels, while he’s asleep. When his mom dies giving birth to his little brother, the “darkness” starts to swallow young xehanorts out of sadness, but his mom, knowing and seeing this already, send a piece of her light, to “save” xehanort. This is where Disney steps in. All those worlds, and etc, are part of fiction, myths, and stories of “the real world” guiding the darkness, TOWARDS light. Darkness cannot be defeated without a form, and light without darkness is a literal nobody. An empty husk. And that’s where destiny island comes up. Xehanort light and dark are divided into physical forms, and kairi is the key that binds them together. Kairi isn’t “real”, but to sora and Riku, she was real, in the island and in their travels etc, and that’s why the whole thing takes place, because deep down, he knows that in “another world” my friends are real, and they won’t consume each other, and we all loved at peace, until, that is, he woke up again. He wants to live in a place where everything is an equal- but that’s not possible in “reality”. He knows this, and in time sets up a chain of events leading to KH1/2/BBS, all to TRY and break the balance of existence, and overlap all realities. Since in the real world, the darkness had no shape (yet) until KH3, (and after, that’s why sora and Riku, yozora are in “the real world”) he had to invent a digital version to store the MEMORIES of the nobodies that the darkness would create, so that they could have form. Everything, and almost everyone is actually just 7 people. 7 people made of both one light and one darkness. organization 13, is the difference of those light swallowed into darkness, with the help of ONE light, which is sora. Who never gave up. And connects all hearts into one- xehanort.

    So two things about Scala:
    – I expect you don’t see any mountains off in the distance because they’re covered in buildings now.
    – It’s not far-fetched for a Keyblade wielder to use magic to create a city — particularly with the Master’s Defender, which was used to restructure the destroyed Land of Departure into Castle Oblivion. One would normally assume it was a unique property of Land of Departure, but I doubt Keyblade wielders made that world from scratch (at best establishing an outpost there), and the Master’s Defender predates the worlds being split. All we know is that such a “trick” required the Master’s Defender specifically.

    That being said, you do raise an interesting logistical question. With most Keyblade Wielders dead after the War except for the Dandelions and Foretellers, most of the Foretellers jumping to the future or another worldline, most of the Dandelions being turned into Dream Eaters or choosing to reincarnate, and the *world itself canonically being destroyed,* how the _hell_ did Scala get repopulated?
    Which, I can only expect one of two answers.
    1) Plot hole. Nomura didn’t really think about it and will just handwave it later if it’s brought up, “Oh there were other survivors who fled to the mountains” or whatever.
    2) Exactly what we’ve seen in Dark Road, but on a massive scale: Gateways were opened for prospective wielders. Ephemer built the city, then opened gates to other worlds to find students and try to populate it.

    It also raises the question of how Luxu’s Keyblade ended up on a display case in Scala, though. His role was to pass on his Keyblade to an apprentice and survive to watch over it, so clearly whatever apprentice he took on ended up in Scala, but then was memorialized rather than passing it down themselves. Like, what happened to Luxu during the interim?

    Ok so the thing is that Luxu and Brian did the same thing Xahanord “tried” to do with Terra. Luxu was actually able to complete the transfer. He was able to push Brain’s heart out of his body. This would more then likely make it so Brain could travel forward in time. The difference is that Terra resisted getting his heart push out of his body. Causing his heart to be trapped within Xahanord’s strong heart. If Terra did not resist one could reason the process would be complete and his Wayfinder necklace with Aqua’s memory could had revived him. This is my view of things.

    You did a really phenomenal job summarizing that. I stopped watching the cutscenes up to Maleficent finding out she’s been sent back in time (???) so I’ll need to re-watch from there but you’ve given a somewhat clear summary of the events of the ending. At least enough that I can go “holy fucking shit”

  790. Daire Bulson
    June 3, 2021 @ 9:11 pm

    And Xehanort DID meet Ventus (from his dreams, his predecessor’s memories)… except than he nearly killed him and took Vanitas out of him XD
    And he met Lauriam/Marluxia, Elrena/Larxene, the people of his “dreams”

    Also why does Ephemer have the Keyblade that Master Eraqus uses and would later be used by Master Aqua. Is this just a thing I missed all this time are could it be a hint that Ephemer trained Xehanort and Eraqus in the future?

    I have a theory about what is going to happen in the end of this forteller saga. If you remember Grandma Kairi’s story/prophecy, there is one very interesting line. Its something like, “One day, the door to Kingdom Hearts will open and the true light will return. This still hasn’t happened, but I think it will be just like there were 13 original/”true” darknesses, there are 7 true lights locked within Kingdom Hearts. Possibly this is what Xehanort has been trying to access too

  809. TheDwarvenDefender
    June 3, 2021 @ 11:38 pm

    15:22 My dude. I’m pretty sure it’s what they use to censor things in Japanese. Like how we type things as “****ing” or “god**** piece of ****.” Now he’s obviously not censoring it because it’s a curse word. I mean this is Nomura we’re talking about. He’s censoring it because it’s important to the plot or the meta. Which leads me to my theory that the censored word is FANTASY. AS IN FINAL FANTASY. Fantasy and fiction go hand-in-hand, do they not? This world that the Master of Masters dreams of, beyond the battle of darkness and light, is his FINAL FANTASY.

    June 4, 2021 @ 12:44 am

    darkness, which we all know can change in all forms and colors, can be explained by their vessel’s reaction to what events may come, but on the other hand, the temptation can give so many theories away, but in this kind of way to what we know now.
    to break it down, we saw orgVIII’s eye color since Xehanort is controlling only a small percentage but then full control when having so many “mediums” to out max the guardians of light. in kh2, the original nobodies’ eye colors were blue, green, and then some. still, can the darkness change the eye color slightly by darkening it or changing the color entirely without a controlled vessel? IDK, but this can do so much if you know how photoshop’s invert tool can be used for. but that’s not important. in any other objectives that darkness can change moods and clothing textures.

    but the wield a weapon from the light, is not possible in many other ways that the element light defies the darkness and vice-versa. but with luxu and the master of masters, that theory can be contradicted, to brain being possessed by luxu, that can give the eye color a light purple color, or just light black if you know chemistry. but with the master of masters, if that light is actually affecting the darkness to give off a weird identity to be seen, it can be still possible to know what can be seen in just those eyes. if not, then ephamer could possibly be the master of masters, just like how sora could be a possible theory in these past two years. if not, then I tried.

  819. jacob miller
    June 4, 2021 @ 1:27 am

    Alternatively the symbol could be a double reference. Yes, it’s a form of an asterisk, but mathematically X stands for variables. Perhaps the MoM is using that symbol to denote that quadratum is somewhere where an important variable exists that makes his goal achievable.

  820. jacob miller
    June 4, 2021 @ 1:38 am

    Another thought comes to mind as well. It’s possible, knowing what we do about how easily possessing characters such as luxu or xehanort can feint that they are the vessel rather than themselves, the brain we see in scala may in fact be luxu already.

    The KH lore is getting too convoluted for me, it feels almost impossible to actually know WTF is happening or what anything means since it’s so spread out and it’s like they’re starting to kind of try and explain things but they leave too much up in the air while also adding new concepts. I just need them to make a movie that explains all this in a condensed form because it’s a lot now.

    Well, at least this also implies the explanation for Sora talking about his weird dreams at the beginning of KH1, at that point, Ventus’ heart is in Sora. Like Xehanort, Sora’s dreams were probably Ventus’ memories. Which then also further implies that Sora may now be in Yozora’s heart, going off his words in ReMind.

    Ephemer creating Scala on the ruins of Daybreak Town actually would possible. In BBS we learn that new MAsters can choose to either leave to find a new world for them or stay and use their power to reshape the world, as Aqua indeed later does by turning LoD into Castle Oblivion. That would explain how Scala and DBT being the same world, but also looking diferent (as in, the mountains being gone).

    I love the batsh💩 insanity of emotion and mind craziness of the KH series 😶 I know people despise it, but the way everything connects so well with added details also adding more questions to the lore to be answered is super enticing for an ongoing storyline like this. Nomura is the dumbest genius I’ve ever encountered.

    Thinking about it now, knowing that the ruins of Daybreak Town are just under Scala ad Caelum makes the final battle with Xehanort in KH3 (pre Re:Mind) much more impactful…

    Saying we had no context for what “traitor” means is just straight up false.

    The traitor is the one who broke from their role. Luxu was meant to observe, nothing more. By acting to save Brain, Luxu became the traitor, since he had now involved himself with the events to come.

    If we’re lucky they’re will be a scene where MoM shows his face to Luxu but of course he wouldn’t recognize himself since MoM switched bodies after the keyblade war.
    Also Luxu is Xigbar….Braig….Brain
    With time travel in play, if my guess is right then that COULD mean Luxu has made it to then end of the story and perhaps went all the way back to become the MoM…….🤯

    June 4, 2021 @ 4:03 pm

    The player’s heart must have been possessed by one of the darknesses after they trapped them. When his heart reincarnated into Xehanort, darkness came with it. They realized after Xehanort’s birth that he was possessed by darkness, but she couldn’t bring herself to end her child so she sent him off to exile in a small and remote world of light, with the robed figure tasked with preventing him from escaping the world, hoping that the Darkness won’t take hold if he isn’t exposed to more. The darkness within Xehanort slowly dragged Destiny Islands to the border of the realm of darkness. The robed figure fights a battle to hold back the tide, sealing the door to darkness within the heart of the world. This exertion kills them, and allows Xehanort to escape Destiny Islands. Luxu’s conversation with Xehanort is meant to subtly instruct him on how to control the Darkness that’s been with him since birth, to ensure it doesn’t escape or take him over. The world of purity that Xehanort wanted to create would have been corrupted by the darkness within him. It was likely waiting for him to destroy the world before taking over Xehanort fully and creating a world of Darkness instead of Light. When Xehanort died, this Darkness latched on to Sora, trying to stay with the X-Blade. When Sora encountered Ventus’s Heart after travelling back in time, the darkness that became part of Vanitas used its connection to Ventus’s heart to try and weaken Sora so the Darkness could take over. Now that Sora is in Quadratum, the Darkness followed him there. I think the Master of Masters intended to lead all the 13 Darknesses there where they could be abandoned in a world they can’t return from. So far, he’s got the darkness he carried, the one in Sora, and potentially Ava’s. There’s Luxu and the 4 other foretellers, Vanitas, Marluxia, and Larxene. Ephemer’s probably left him sometime in Scala, Maleficent likely took Darkness with her back to the present. So one Darkness that’s AFK, unless it possessed Terra, which would explain his struggle with darkness in BBS. He was so surprised when it showed up in the exam, even asking himself where it came from, so it seems like Terra’s struggle with Darkness was new to him in BBS, not an ongoing struggle. It likely followed Xehanort and latched on to Terra during his exam.

    So the current location of the 13 darknesses are probably
    Master of Masters, Sora and maybe Ava in Quadratum.
    Terra in the Realm of Darkness.
    Vanitas, Marluxia, Larxene, Unknown.
    Maleficent, Luxu, and the Foretellers minus Ava, Keyblade Graveyard.

    If the box contains a method to travel to Quadratum, then 9 out of 13 Darknesses will be in Quadratum shortly, as Luxu opens the way and Maleficent and Pete follow them in. Terra will probably go with the rest of the Keyblade crew to rescue Sora. Vanitas will probably follow Ventus there, and Marluxia and Larxene must go there at some point too if that’s where the story seems to be headed. The new game Eraqus mentioned with 7 Darknesses and 1 Light would represent Sora standing against the foreteller’s plans. If the foretellers mean to abandon Darkness in the world of fiction, where it may not affect their reality anymore, but will unleash them on a new reality, Sora will probably oppose them, not wanting to unleash darkness on an unsuspecting world. MoM and company are trying to bring the rest of the Darknesses to the world of fiction, and Sora’s trying to stop them. Yozora and his friends probably find out about this threat and try to stop it. The ending where Yozora crystalizes Sora is probably meant to keep that Darkness contained and from corrupting Sora, and they plan to do that to all 13 vessels. When he loses to Sora, it shows that Sora’s heart is strong enough to contain the Darkness on its own, so his powers aren’t needed yet.

    With Sora’s experience containing hearts, maybe he’ll try to contain all the Darknesses in his heart, where they can’t hurt anyone else.

    Edit: Just thought of something else, Sora may have picked up Marluxia’s, Larxene’s, Terra’s, and Vanitas’s Darkness during his time travel escapades, each one jumping on when they saw a Darkness possessed Time Traveler with plenty of space in his heart. So he may already have 5, and if he takes Maleficent’s quickly in KH4, Then it’s him with 6 Darknesses against 7 with 1 each. The pieces on the board represent all 13 darknesses, with 8 pieces. Each piece he captures is Sora capturing another Darkness. This relates back to Xehanort and Vanitas telling him his heart is a prison in DDD, which would be foreshadowing for this. Riku may end up taking some of his burden, or teaching him how to use Darkness without being overwhelmed by it.

    I’m a fan of the series but the mere existence of Union X pisses me off and I have no interest in getting into it, but I also don’t like spoilers, so I’m not gonna watch the video. I’m here to ask if this means that Squenix will QUIT fucking relegating the expansion of the universe to some drivelly browser game. I’ve been sick of watching the lore just flooding out of this game for years and I’d like for the franchise to return to making actual proper games for this series and putting the interesting stuff in *those*. Is UX finally done for?

  896. GalakStari
    June 4, 2021 @ 6:01 pm

    So does Luxu only possess people with the letters BRAI in their name? First we had Braig/Xigbar, now we’ve got Brain. I don’t know much about Dark Road, but there’s also Bragi, which is an anagram of Braig, but I thought Bragi died with the other fellow students of Xehanort and Eraqus?

    Also, if 7 of the darknesses are supposed to possess the MoM and the six Foretellers, is that the meaning behind the 7 black chess pieces at the end of Kh3? I mean, they each have a symbol representing the MoM and the Foretellers, so maybe the whole “Sora vs The Foretellers” thing is really about Sora fighting and potentially destroying 7 of the 13 darknesses, since they can only be destroyed when inhabiting a body.

  911. darthmarth87
    June 4, 2021 @ 7:51 pm

    so my going theory right now is that both Ephemer and Skuld didn’t warp but survived the destruction in the pods to build SaC (Skuld isn’t shown in game but bare with me) They get closer and in time . . . get busy . . . birthing the woman who seems to be Xehanorts mother – making them the grandparents of old norty.

    This explains why the mother bears resemblence to Skuld while Xehanort inherits Ephemer’s white hair. Blue robed figure is old man Ephemer who has read the BoP so knows to take Xehanort away to set those events in motion (and being the grandparent would explain why the mother trusts him enough to give him up).

    How Ephemer made Scala ad Caelem can be easily explained (as a high probability)…
    He used the Master’s Defender to change the world itself; just like Aqua did to the Land of Departure, turning it into Castle Oblivion…

    The mountains, not being in the distance as mentioned, likely got deleted in the world editing process, or is beyond anything we can see because of all the buildings in the way…
    (just in case of a misunderstanding, I meant Ephemer’s editing of the world, not the IRL creating of the game area)

    Here’s some interesting points: firstly, when The Master is telling “Darkness” about Unreality, the symbol that’s used just so happens to be four dots (Square/Quadratum) within the spaces of an X (Chi). Second, the reason that there are no mountains in Scala ad Caelum despite them being in Daybreak Town is that the settlers/Ephemer probably built those mountain-like cities out of the mountains themselves.

    considering that eraqus grandfather is someone who is said to have faught the darkness, there could be a case that the old man who took xehanort could be brain, thats if were going with someone who we might now. the 2 main issues i have with this is 1: for him to die when xehanort was like 14? even by older standards of living that feels a bit early 2: the way eraqus speaks almost sounds like hes actually talk with him, but this one is kinda on the could be from his parents. im more considering the side that this might be someone knew we dont know about

  945. E Jordan
    June 5, 2021 @ 6:38 am

    I think there are two “Brains” now.
    I think he and Luxu might’ve worked out a deal and Brain let him take his body before using the lifeboat as just a heart. Or something like that.
    Because Brain couldn’t take his body with him and I don’t think Luxu used the machine. So maybe our first glimpse of “Luxu Brain” happens right after the destruction of Daybreak Town and the real Brain gets a new body as he reforms in Scala, like how Maleficent reformed in KH2.

    I think they should really do a double-feature in the next game (Quadratum game) where after you beat it, a long KHUX movie is unlocked that has all the important lore from the phone game and possibly more. That way, we (and especially newcomers to the X-lore) play the game in this new alternate world, and then see the backstory that has ties to said world (mainly MoM plans to get there, keyblade masters with the ability to phase in and out of the world, etc.) and the old ties of KH characters we already know (Ven, Laurium, Elrena).

    I’ve played all the games except for the mobile games and the data game where Sora goes to data worlds I believe?? Just wasn’t interested in it, which leads me to a couple questions or my own hypothesis. Someone who knows more than I do please try to explain it to me. My first hypothesis is this: what if the hooded figure in KH1 at the beginning of the game who tells sora the worlds are connected isn’t actually Ansems heartless (or xehanorts) but actually one of the darknesses without a form that you see in the mobile game? And the brown robe gives it the appearance of a human. Because in road to darkness or whatever it’s called the same figure shows up and talks to xehanort saying he’s his waypoint. Unless that’s just one of the forms xehanort sent to the future or past?? I don’t know… and secondly a question, who is talking to you in the first and second games that says you’ll be the one who opens the door?? Did we ever find out and I completely miss it??

    At a certain point, you have to respect the sheer audacity of Nomura putting the key to unraveling the entire mythos of his series in an obscure mobile game over the course of nearly a decade.
    If Yoko Taro did this, everyone would be calling him a subversive genius.

    Thinking of how Xehanort wakes up in dark road after having strange memories that don’t belong to him, its hard not to remind one of the beginning of KH1. Now I know nomura likes to tie parallels and uses themes but is it possible that a previous keyblade wielder (cough MoM) found his way into sora after some form of death. It could be the reason why sora/mom are so similar in mannerisms. This could also be the reason why he’s so connected to everyone as well as the reason why he has the king crown as his icon, and the reason why Luxu and the rest of the foretellers are fighting him in future installments as shown on eraquis chessboard.

    Wait, so the dream eaters are basically the spirits of the dead who have decided to become guardian spirits in death to guard people as they dream? That’s rad! I can’t believe that detail flew over my head. Wow, I will never make fun of dream eaters ever again. Nomura, you absolute mad lad and meme lord, I love you.

    Also yeah I had a hard time figuring out where Brain was when he woke up. It looks less Minas Tirith and more London than it should if you ask me.

    I think the Scalla we see in Union Roads is the base, or an entirely different, Scalla we see in 3.

    Now hear me out; We have concepts like sleeping worlds, virtual worlds, worlds that exist outside the realm of light and dark (world that never was anyone?) and worlds that exist between.
    Not just that but in 3 the Scalla we access has many similar (and slightly different) islands surrounding it and is pure white compared to the grey we see in Union X and we access THAT Scalla through Kingdom Hearts itself (though that may be some funky memory thing kingdom hearts does who knows)

    Now a lot of other things may have happened between Xehanort being born and then showing up to train under the First Keyblade Master (and possibly his baby daddy given the same hair color) because the scene of Xehanort and Eraqus playing chess also SHOWS the white Scalla while baby-Xehanort was still grey and misty. Perhaps Darkness was completely eradicated from that world in it’s entirety or something as simple as “yeah zoning laws or whatever state everything is white now.”

    Though that’s all me speculating on faulty memory, lack of sleep, and also an odd fascination I’ve had with this series since I was 10 so take my theory here with grains of salt.

    I just couldn’t pull off getting far in the story due to power creep in the game as f2p for a long time. I just wish they turned the game into a full game for free like SE did with Kairisei Million Arthur.

    But I think the exception with Kiarisei was how dedicated the playerbase was and how passionate they were about the constantly self-destruction of what was an amazing gacha game in JP. Far as I’ve been aware, KRSMA was the first and only gacha they shut down and turned into a full free game so everybody could enjoy the story. The fan translators were hella passionate about getting it localized.

    Shame it died on arrival in the SEA version. This game, considering how important the story was made to be in the overall KH IP, deserves to be turned into a full free game. (Same with Mobius FF and DFFOO but that is a different story)

    June 6, 2021 @ 11:09 am

    This is completely tinfoil hat and 99% joke… But… If we think of xehanort as namuras self insert, then the player character could represent his childhood and how growing up ripped his innocense away and how hes becomes so jadded over the years, only to be reminded of his younger years and given happieness by others (aka, sora beating xehanort).

    God, I’m so glad I left the series on KH3. This got convoluted as hell, and feels like a Winchester Mansion patchwork of lore and plot threads to continue the series. This is just a bloated mess. Nomura needs to stop writing, it’s clear he thinks cheap twists and throwing in new characters to complicate old plots is compelling storytelling.

    It’s not. It’s bloat for the sake of padding things along and making a story’s lifespan extend far longer than it should have lived. The man should never have been more than an art director. I’m done.

    ok but wait i just noticed something. young xehanort, at the beginning of dark road, talks about the dreams he’s been having. who else talks about something v e r y similar at the beginning of his own journey? FUCKING! SORA!!! holy shit if i’m right then that means that sora has the essence of a dandelion in him too which would FURTHER explain his connection to the dreameaters. ajkfhksdflsfjl this just hit me like a mf truck in the middle of watching this. so many of us found sora’s monologue at the beginning of kh1 made no sense and it always stood out to me as odd bcs, like, why would he say something like that? it doesn’t line up with any of the lore we have? oooh i hope this turns out bigger then this like i am so hyped rn. all those little puzzle pieces that didn’t quite fit are finally lining up with the bigger picture here. its all starting to come together and i am HERE for it

  1072. zaracon3
    June 7, 2021 @ 7:50 pm

    So I feel like I’ve come up with a crazy big brain theory, there may have just been 1 key blade wielder initially who may have been the original wielder of the X Blade or possibly X’s blade who had so much power he may have been afraid of his own darkness and broke not just the X blade into 13 dark and 7 light but himself as well and that the master of masters is the last of these lights who hates the darkness so much, because it’s his own darkness thus why the darkness would call him a friend because they were once 1, this also explains why the master of master doesn’t confront the darkness himself and his lost comrades he mentions to Luxu was likely the other 6 lights of himself, who already got melded in with the darkness causing him to actively fear them enough to run to a world of fiction that the darkness can’t enter. On top of this the main goal of the series may be a tale as simple as facing your own darkness as we have seen this many times with in the main cast, almost everyone in Sora’s friend group befriending Roxas and Namine could be seen as this for both Kairi and Sora, its Riku’s whole plot essentially, Aqua did it in KH3, Ventus and Venitas works with this concept, Terra fighting even has a heartless as well and on that note we do have past histories of people breaking into darkness and light already in the series, with nobodies and Sora especially who formed a light body despite having a nobody split of dark and light, if you really stop to think about it this solves so many issues in the plot and essentially this builds up Luxu to be on Sora’s side and the master of masters as the main antagonist as his fear to face own darkness could be seen as the cause to all the worlds problems. 1 more point in this theories favor is the master of masters states that the 13 founded the darkness, if something is founded implies a time where there was no darkness (prior to X’s split) I say his name is X since when the master is talking to the darkness said there wont be a word of a symbol that resembles an X we assume that’s to hid info but it could just be his original name thus the X blade. take this theory as you will but its my head cannon so far until proven otherwise.

Remember how Yozora said “this isn’t what I really look like” and that Stella2/Nameless star said “My heart was replaced with anothers”. Maybe Brain had his body stolen by Luxu and his heart woke up in the other world? Ugh I dont know NOMURA

    Hang on….
    Bruh… if there are 13 darkness’, and luxu deviated and slapped his on xehanort that potentially means, that the whole time we dealt with him, that was only 1 of 13. So plus side 12 left, downside that was only 1 and by itself it nearly voided the worlds 😅 so 3 games and spin offs per darkness = KH gonna out life span most of us 🤣 or a couple per game… but damn.

    So KH definitely more boggling than ever

    I’ve got this theory….that blue coated figure is master Yensid. I recently aquired KH3 and in KH2.9 master Yensid seems to have a connection to Luxu (when they say something like…the path you must follow will be revealed by your heart…or something). That confused me a lot, why such polar (dark and light) characters would be connected somehow.

    Now see, I like ur theory better. Most of the peeps out there keep saying that Xehanort is the avatar player from union cross, or rather that they were reincarnated as him. However thats the pt that still doesn’t click with me all the way. The way u explained it makes much more sense because the player just said that they’d be going on another journey. All Chrithy said was that the player had the choice of going to sleep or moving on basically. Ur explanation of maybe that’s why Sora had the ability to connect with the spirits and Ventus so much makes loads more sense. P.s. I skipped through some stuff since u haven’t even seen yhe secret ending to kh3 yet, the remind dlc, or the MOM content either.

    I figured out the whole “Player CAC becoming Xehanort” when I saw the opening to Dark Road.
    One of the darknesses was in Dark Road, and it took over the Queen of Hearts.
    The line that Xigbar states in 3D makes sense when context from Union is added to it.

    I’ve got a big theory, be ready for the bomb 💣 What if Luxu, abandoned his vessel(Brain) not for the reason that he was no longer of use, but him(Luxu) knowing the value of that vessel as Brain possess certain qualities and abilities as a keyblade wielder (master) whatever you want to call it, we seen this with Terranort as Xehanort kept his abilities, now that’s why we see Brain in both the keyblade graveyard and scala ad caelum, maybe it can be two different points in time as it is possible we’ve seen it in Kingdom Hearts 3, ok here comes the bomb let’s say that theory^^^ its right and Brain was living a good plenty life in Scala, let’s say Luxu was that old man who took baby Xehanort to Destiny Islands to fulfill part of his roll, and let’s say that old man(Luxu) transferred to another vessel just for the purpose of going back to Scala or do another task which we might not know maybe that’s why that old man dies, ok here it is, let’s say Brain has become an adult and he for some reason was able to summon The No Name without being a vessel, he trains Odin, then Odin trains Xehanort, but how does this relate to Luxu, well let’s say Brain passed on his The No Name Keyblade to Odin, let’s say he retired (lol) and let’s say Luxu came back to Scala in another vessel he rushed to find Brain and retransferred his heart to Brain to be able to control him once more, let’s say Brain was fighting back like Terra did with Xehanort but since Brain had nothing else to fight for he lost the battle, let’s say Luxu took complete control over his heart and body, he time traveled knowing he had nothing else to do in that point in time, and he got into the BBS timeline, think about, Brain and Braig is the same f-ing name just without the n at the end like bruh, Nomura it’s the sly fox, therefore Brain doesn’t look like Braig just yet because he is an adult in BBS that’s why I said Brain became an adult on the top^^^ and Luxu thinking he was smart (well Nomura) changed his name to “Braig” lol , think about it they have black hair, yes maybe not the pointy ear but for a reason Nomura didn’t put them it would’ve had been to obvious of a spoiler. And since Braig, Luxu, Xigbar still is a Nobody at the end of KH3 on the epilogue, therefore he cannot longer age because Nobodies do not age(don’t exist)Here’s a more simplified version. Just know that Luxu is probably the second and only to be able to use the power of waking without being put into Quadratum and being on a stasis(crystallization stage) due to the fact that he is the most closest apprentice of the MoM

    Luxu(Brain Vessel) —> Brain (Not under control) —> Luxu(Old man vessel) —> Luxu(another vessel after old man?) —>Brain(Adult) – Luxu goes back to Scala —> Luxu(Brain Vessel again) —-> Luxu changes name instead of Brain, Braig but why Braig? There has to be a reason for this, —-> Luxu(Braig Vessel) time travels to BBS timeline —> You know the rest of the story.

    Well let me know what you all think about this crazyyyyyy theory, notice me @TheGamersJoint Jared🙌

    Remember also that Eraqus is a direct descendant of one of the Leaders, so either Brain or Ephemer. But taking looks into account I would say Brain.

    Either way, Nomura really said: “Here’s one answer and 10 questions. See ya in KH4!!!!”

    [edit: it wouldn’t surprise me if Skuld ends up being Xehanort’s mother. It seems something Nomura would do to mess with the fandom]

    The symbol in the MoM’s text could be a double meaning, as you mentioned it’s a Japanese symbol for importance but I also noticed that the root “quad” in Quadratum means four, of which there are sections and dots in the MoM’s mentioned symbol.

    For how Ephemer made Scala, I imagined he used the master’s keeper. Aqua used it to remake the Land of Departure to Castle Oblivion, and it was Eraqus who told her about that. I dunno that’s just conjecture though.

    June 11, 2021 @ 4:55 pm

    Skuld is Subject X, I’m leaning on that thought due to the fact that we see where everyone else ended up EXCEPT her cause Nomura ALREADY told us. Think about it. Why show even when Luxu took over Brain, if your not gonna show Skuld

  1145. Yuu Chan
    June 12, 2021 @ 1:19 am

    Why do I feel like after watching the KH series further and further – Sora may not be one of the Guardians of Light, he may only be an extra character that had a big role to fulfill just as what he had mentioned in DDD that he is just a small part of something even bigger. I’m not sure hehehe but HEY this is just me and my opinion. I don’t have any evidence but I’m just going with what I have in mind and feel. I mean he wasn’t never meant to be a keyblade weilder but rather he was just option with what happened in KH1, that is why the keyblade chose him – although even though he was just an extra just like in any other series/movie he became a scene stealer and outshined even the protagonists hehe. AGAIN THIS IS JUST MY OPINION 😅 I just had to let it out. For all who will encounter or read this – Thanksss for reading it though ✌🤗

    The thing is I just beat this and the dialogue is completely different. For example, when he refers to the world of “fiction” he says “— World”, kinda like the missing word in Kingdom Hearts 2, not whatever the symbol is in this video. Other stuff has been rewritten or worded differently as well. He also makes a reference to the chessboard.

    Wouldn’t Dream Eaters (both Spirits and Nightmares) that already existed prior to DDD, maybe even BBS if the worlds dreaming produced more, be the only ones that are or could be reshaped Chirithy protecting the sleeping Hearts of their wielders? In DDD Sora’s, Riku’s, and the TWEWY crew’s ally Dream Eaters were all crafted by them from their own dreams making those Spirits the same as each Dandelion’s Dream Eater companion (not Chirithy, the other one).
    Joshua to Riku: “Why don’t we give your dreams shape? In this world, they take form as Dream Eaters, which can become great allies.”

    I can’t fucking take it. I see an image of a random object posted and then I see it, I fucking see it. “Oh that looks kinda like a Xehanort” it started as. That’s funny, that’s a cool reference. But I kept going, I’d see a fridge that looked like Xehanort, I’d see an animated bag of chips that looked like Xehanort, I’d see a hat that looked like Xehanort. And every time I’d burst into an insane, breath deprived laugh staring at the image as the words NORTED ran through my head. It’s torment, psychological torture, I am being conditioned to laugh maniacly any time I see a black coated person. I can’t fucking live like this… I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t I can’t! And don’t get me fucking started on the words! I’ll never hear the word darkness again without thinking of Xehanort. Someone does something bad and I can’t say anything other than “Norted.” I could watch a man murder everyone I love and all I would be able to say is “He’s Norted” and laugh like a fucking insane person. And the word “darkness” is ruined. The phrase “Darkness” is ruined. I can’t live anymore. Xehanort has destroyed my fucking life. I want to eject myself from this plane of existence. MAKE IT STOP!
